Did You Know Today’s TIGGERIFIC TUESDAY TRIVIA On what the PeopleMover and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster have in common??
If you guessed wait times, you are incorrect. The PeopleMover is propelled by a Linear Induction Motor (LIM) which is the same system used to propel the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster to 60 MPH. Though the PeopleMover never reaches a speed over 7 MPH, the linear motors use an electrical current to create an electromagnetic field. The PeopleMover vehicles have magnets on them and the interaction with the magnetic fields create propulsion and move the vehicles along the track. The system is great on the environment and also on repair costs as fewer parts break down due to friction.
